Criminal Defense Attorneys Serving All Areas of Louisiana


Donna Burkhamer, of Kenner, Louisiana, was booked in Jefferson Parish Correctional Center in Gretna, Louisiana on two counts of theft over $1,500, two counts of bank fraud and monetary instrument abuse after she reportedly admitted she knew the check was bogus.

There is a popular fake check scam where victims unknowingly deposit a fake check into their bank accounts and wire a portion of the amount to the sender who has requested banking “help.”  However, Burkhamer allegedly knew the check was bogus and deposited the check worth $13,555.50 into her account.

Burkhamer allegedly opened the account in November and deposited the fake check several days later.  Then, she withdrew $6,700 a few days later. The bank reportedly lost a total of $12,700 in withdrawals as a result.
